In recent months, dozens of Haitians have died in search of a better life as unscrupulous boat captains take advantage of the island residents' desperation, and the island's poorly guarded northwest location, to turn it into a popular jumping-off point for migrant journeys to the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and Florida.
